Heaven in Chocolate Cake form

Okay, so I'm pretty proud of myself because I came up with this all by my lonesome. :D And it actually turned out FABULOUS! Okay, so you start out with a devil's food cake mix, then add most of a can of pie filling (I used strawberry, chocolate and strawberry are just fantastic together) keep a little in reserve for garnishing. Anyway, so you cook the cake (I had to add an extra ten minutes to the baking timebut I don't know if that's becauseof the pie filling or my oven so I'd start out follwing the cook time on the box, then checking it.) For icing I used a stick of butter, softened and 2 cups of powedered suger. Mix it all together until creamy, then add a little vanilla flavoring. Sorry, I kind of just threw some in there so I'm not sure how much it was, probably 2 or 3 teaspoons. once your cakes are cooled (you can see in the picture, my cakes were still a little warm so the frosting melted. lol!) iceyour cake, and put the rest of your fruit on top to look pretty and viola'! A moist, fabulous, chocolate bit of heaven. Enjoy!!
